The loss of hearing, either in part or full, makes routine activities more difficult to participate in. It might be something as simple as that constant ringing that comes with tinnitus, or more serious damage to your hearing. Hearing damage can affect your ability to engage in conversations with friends and receive instructions at work.
For an accurate hearing test that provides you with fine-tuned hearing aids that work for you, you need a hearing test with the expertise of a qualified RHIP. Our team at the Gabriola Island NexGen Hearing clinic located on North Road is passionate about providing the highest quality hearing aid care to all of our patients. Get in touch with us today to book a free hearing test today, and get back to hearing the fantastic sounds of our city!

ANSWERS ABOUT HEARING AIDS AND MORE
Frequently Asked Questions
Hearing aid prices vary from several hundred dollars up to a few thousand, and it all depends on the technology level in each device. Affordable hearing aids and the more expensive options come with different features and capabilities.
You can think of hearing aids as coming in levels of gold, silver, or bronze. If your listening needs are simple, it just might be that even the most basic hearing aid is enough for you. If your life is more active and you find yourself wanting to hear better in more active and noisy listening environments, then a more sophisticated level of hearing aid features will give you more benefit.
NexGen Hearing also offers financing options to help you with an affordable option to improve your hearing. Learn more about our lease to hear financing and other hearing aid financing options.

The act of not wearing a hearing aid in itself will not make your hearing get worse. What can make your hearing get worse is not wearing a hearing aid and needing to increase the volume on things like televisions, radios, and headphones, or needing people you are talking with to talk louder. We recommend you wear your hearing aid as directed by your doctor and audiologist. However, if you are not wearing your hearing device, be sure not to overdo it with turning up the volume.
